Subject: Psychedelic Safety Officer Jerry Garcia
Late into the 2nd set, 12,000 tripped out New Rider/Dead fans passed thousands of wooden fold-up chairs over our heads to the side and back of the Iowa City Fieldhouse to get them off our dance floor. The Dead awarded our efforts with the best "Around and Around" I'd ever heard then, and since. Dead shows opening with the New Riders in 1970-71 were epic. Proof that drugged out anarchy was not chaotic at all.!
Subject: Jerry stopped I.C. concert to get audience comfortable
Iowa City Fieldhouse had wood chairs set up on the floor. Audience was moving around and chairs were causing problems. Jerry had the band stop playing and announced that everyone should fold up the chairs and stack them against the walls. They started playing for what seemed to be 3-4 hours, although the recordings here don't add up to that total. :-)
Dig the show. Vocals seem odd at times but not bothersome. Great setlist. Solid show for sure.

Jerry sounds like he is really enjoying the evening.
Truckin', Hard To Handle, Loser, Casey Jones and Bertha are hot as per "highlights".
Good Lovin' will have you grooving, although I've heard better raps. Uncle John's Band is jammed out, if not sung harmoniously. Jerry sounds great in Love Light, but can't deal with Weir's interjecting at all.
The board sounds great *****. I had never heard it. Thank You kindly to all
Subject: you don't never know
as said already, real tight show though the vocals are off here and there the playing makes up for it. great to hear such a strong pig presence. a gem for sure.
Subject: Great Good Lovin'....
or Best Good Lovin'?
This show is fan-tabulous. Its really nice to hear these '71 gems. This one is hot and smokey and spicy and you might find yourself doin a lil shakin' and a lil' groovin' in your chair while listening to this show. The Good Lovin' is epic. As another poster says, this show is chocked full of Pig. Just crank it up and enjoy - this one gets 5 stars.

Subject: Too vocal?
The vocals seem to distort at high levels, but maybe it's just my computer speakers...or my ears. Either way I'm downloading this because I love this period, and the sound(vocals aside) and playing are really good. Nice early Deal. Plenty-o-Pig! Just hope it sounds better on the big stereo. 4's fair.
Subject: Love it.
I like it too except they are singing WAY off key
in the harmony vox of truckin'. So what?
Jerry's sweet playin' more than makes up for it.
Subject: Laid back.
Just a good, tight show. Especially enjoyed Next time you see me, Bobby McGee.
